Now in its 10th year, North Shore Medical Center has the largest and most successful surgical weight loss program on the North Shore. Our bariatric surgeons perform 200 procedures per year, and our patients achieve dramatic results in long-term weight loss and overall improved health.
We have been accredited as a Level 1A Bariatric Surgery Center by the Bariatric Surgery Center Network Accreditation Program of the American College of Surgeons. The Level 1A designation means that our program is an option for all patients, including those with Medicare or Tufts Health Plan insurance, which require their patients to receive care at these highly-ranked programs.
All patients attend our free monthly group information sessions. During these sessions they learn about the surgical procedures and the risks and benefits of each. They meet the surgeons, and learn about the commitment required to be successful before and after surgery. We also offer peer support groups where prospective patients can ask questions and interact with other patients in the program.
